So apparently there was some debate about whether Christina Applegate would return for “Anchorman 2”, reprising her women’s lib character Veronica Corningstone from the 2004 original. Well if you were wondering, you can stop now — Applegate has confirmed that she is, indeed, returning to the newsroom alongside Will Ferrell.
Applegate’s confirmation comes pretty late, especially since the original team behind the first movie have already made the official announcement and even shot a teaser trailer (below). Though honestly, last we saw Cornerstone and San Diego’s classiest news anchor, one Ron Burgundy, they had been “discovered” and had already moved on to bigger and better things beyond Channel 4.
Which makes you wonder where “Anchorman 2” would take them…
“Anchorman 2” has the gang all back, including Paul Rudd as gun-toting ladies man Brian Fantana, Steve Carell as dullard Brick Tamland, and David Koechner’s sexually questionable sports guy Champ Kind. Adam McKay, who directed and co-wrote the first movie (with Will Ferrell), will return to direct the sequel.
“Anchorman 2”, the further adventures of Ron Burgundy, returns in 2013.
